Imagine if the Oilers had claimed him? Leaving Calgary with no ROR and no draft picks. BRUTAL.

They are lucky that the Avs matched!
There's speculation that the Avs didn't officially match and only said they would, i.e. the paperwork hasn't been filed yet. So the Flames might still be in deep trouble. We shall see.
